Ear 'candles' are hollow tubes made from unbleached cotton or linen and hardened with beeswax. They are infused with various herbs e.g. sage and chamomile and when lit, they resemble candles, hence their name.
- Following a brief examination of the ear to ensure suitability of the treatment, an ear candle is gently inserted into the opening of the ear and then lit.
- By careful placement of the therapist's hands, a vacuum is created which helps draw impurities from the ear area.
- You will feel gentle heat around the ear and you may hear pleasant popping or crackling sounds as the ingredients are burning.
Once both ears have been treated, you should rest for 10-15 minutes and during which you will have a gentle face massage.
You should avoid water sports and swimming for 24 hours after each treatment.
